Member Ratings and Notes

Oh yeah, that's big n' peaty but still graceful and light.   Gingery spice balanced with sugars and a hint of BBQ sauce.  Yep, tasty.

 

Retaste:

Still big and peaty but this time I get more brine in the nose and a salty tang in the finish.

Pretty expected and in line with the recent PE DL Platinums from 2010. Not a revelation, but tasty. 
Fuji
 
Citrus, brine and peppers on the nose.  Continues on the palate with lots of bbq/ toasty notes but the spices are much sharper in the finish.
